The cricketer turned politician Imran Khan, chief of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI), has married for the third time on Sunday. Khan chose Bushra Maneka, a respected faith healer (Pir) in Pakpattan, to be his third wife and the Internet just couldn’t take it. The cricket legend has always been a sensation on the Internet and his party is the biggest party on social media according to every survey but you won’t need a survey to figure that out.
Some people were ecstatic at the news of Khan’s marriage and wished him a very happy married life. It included senior PTI leadership and thousands of Khan’s followers.
Congratulations Imran Khan on his marriage. Wish the happy couple all the best #MubarakImranKhan

While some people were genuinely happy about Khan’s new matrimony, others were a bit resentful. Many were even embarrassed that their leader was busy wooing a woman when instead he was supposed to focus on the upcoming elections. The rival parties’ supporters jeered Khan for marrying for a third time as if marriage is the purpose of his life.
My 8 years nephew asked his 10 years old brother after watching Imran khan marriage news on Tv.
How many you will have?
And i was Rofl

Even though some were mocking the PTI chief, the majority of the crowd was behind his back and offered their full support to Khan. He was also appreciated by some followers for marrying a divorced mother of five children even though he could marry whoever he wants. The Insafians, who stated that marriage is a Sunnah, also defended Khan saying there is nothing wrong with it.
People think Imran khan really cares about their opinion on his 3rd marriage. https://t.co/VcuLmouTfy

Though I am not a pti supporter (due to ATMs ) but I still commend imran khan on his marriage and wish and pray best for him.
Atleast he broke the evil taboo of marrying aged/married women , just like our prophet PBUH did . #MubarakImranKhan#SheikupuraRoarsWithNawaz #PTI

Imran Khan has also shown that there is not standard age and time for marriage. The right time and age to get married is when you are ready and find your person.

All major news agencies of the world covered the news of Khan’s marriage which shows his stature and standing in the international arena.
A Pakistani English newspaper, The News, had claimed Khan’s marriage with Bushra Maneka in an article on 6th January but the claim was refuted by Khan and PTI, stating that Khan had merely proposed to Maneka. When the formal news was announced, The News staff felt triumphant and they were quick to claim the spoils of victory.
The News reporter @UmarCheema1 should be considered biggest saint and peer of Pakistan for disclosing the names of Nikah Khawan, Witnesses, Bride and Groom along with the event name and place a month before the event took place. Miracles still happen pic.twitter.com/firMcghu4m
— Murtaza Ali Shah (@MurtazaGeoNews) February 18, 2018
PTI apologists please do explain to us how Umar Cheema could predict the names of Nikah khawans witnesses and attendees a whole month and a half ago. And now where do the emotional denials by Manekas stand. This is a shameless power play by disgusting people.

Never knew Imran Khan follows & respects Umar Cheema so religiously that in order to protect the reporter from global infamy for writing a “false” story he decided to marry the same woman named as his 3rd wife. @UmarCheema1 @TalatHussain12 @tomthehack @ZarrarKhuhro @zuberishahab
